Eleven-year-old Jack's ordinary life is upended when mysterious creatures attack his hometown and he is whisked into a fantastical adventure filled with danger at every turn...

This is a wild ride that is best started early in the evening and with hot tea mixed with honey. Early because your kids will not let you stop with just one chapter and hot tea with honey for your voice because they won't let you stop after the second, third and fourth either. "Please dad, one more chapter" and "It's still early" will be phrases you become very familiar with as Clark and Batterson are experts at the cliff hanger. To be honest, my kids didn't need to beg, I too thoroughly enjoyed the ride! From the first page to the last, these books will fascinate and expand the imagination - enjoy.
